Spellbinders Guest Post | One

Hello everyone!
I am super thrilled to share that I am a Guest Blogger this month at the Spellbinders blog. I will be showcasing the new range of 3D Vignettes Die Collection by Amazing Paper Grace. I have two projects to share today. First up, I have a very intricate and detailed layered card, while the second project is a favour bag.

I will start with the card first. I have used the Spellbinders Grand Arch 3D Card Etched dies for creating the background for my card. I die-cut it out of some white, heavy-weight cardstock and coloured it using a teal colored ink. The elegance of these dies is something I truly love, and there are so many possibilities with them.

The gorgeous couple image is from the Spellbinders Happily Ever After dies. I cut out the die twice, once from white cardstock, and the second time using gold foil cardstock to make the images of the bride and groom stand out. The lovely bouquet is made using the small flowers included in this set. They were die cut, colored and then shaped to create the 3D look.

The dress for the bride has been embossed using the Filigree Veil Etched Dies on vellum, and colored lightly from the back of the die-cut to give it a teal tint.

The Happily Ever After sentiment has been cut from one of the dies from the Happily Ever After Etched dies set. I snipped the word die cut from the frame. It was cut out of some gold foil cardstock.

The flowers on my card are all handmade. I cut them out using the Cinch and Go Flowers III dies. I also added some leaves which were cut from vellum using dies from the same set.

The Arch shaped frame is from the Ornamental Arch Etched dies. I first cut the arch outline, and then layered it with the arch inlay die cut. I really enjoyed creating this card, and specially working with Becca's designs. They make any card look so gorgeous!
Here is another look at my card, showing you the dimension and the gold foil.

The second project that I have to share is a gift bag, which coordinates with the card. I used similar colors in both, so that they could be given as a gift set.

The gift bag was created using a Punch Board. It's a medium sized bag, the dimensions being approximately being 11 inches X 3 1/2 inches in breadth.

I have used the Filigree Veil Etched die set to cut out the two white pieces on my bag. The design is really pretty, and would work so well as card flaps too!

The lil' flower cluster is created using the tiny flower dies from the Petite Double Bow and Flower Etched dies. I love using my dies to their fullest capabilities, and the tiny flowers are really perfect for floral bouquets. The elegant frame has been cut out from gold foil cardstock from the Grand Dome 3D Card Etched dies. The frame worked out perfectly, and I think it compliments my florals really well.  The white border on the bottom is actually from the Tiered Rosettes die set, but I have used it as a die cut border here.

I went ahead and decorated the back of the bag using the same Filigree Veil Etched dies. I think it completes the look. What do you think?
